    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    For The Pastry:
    1 2/3 cups of all purpose flour
    1 pinch of salt
    1/2 cup of butter, cut in small pieces
    1 Tbs of butter, (add to above)
    2 Tbs of sugar
    1 egg
    4 Tbs of ice water
    For The Filling:
    1 1/2 lbs of cream cheese
    1/4 cup of oil
    1 1/4 cups of sugar
    3 eggs, separated
    1/4 cup of cornstarch
    5 drops of vanilla
    1/2 cup of milk


    Pastry Shell:
    Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or knives, cut in butter until evenly distributed and mixture resembles breadcrumbs. With a fork, lightly mix in sugar, egg and enough ice water to make a dough. Press into a ball and wrap in foil or plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a floured surface, roll out dough to fit a 10-inch flan tin with a removable bottom. Place dough in tin without stretching.
    Beat cream cheese, oil, sugar, egg yolks, cornstarch, vanilla and milk in a large bowl until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into cream cheese mixture. Pour into pastry shell. Bake 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Turn off oven. Let cheesecake cool in oven with door open slightly. Remove cooled cheesecake from tin and serve.
